Tough to do much since your dryer did "use" the power.


I like the speeding cracks. Look at it this way..it'* a ticket w/o the points.

Our tickets here are $175. and then on your birthday they send you another bill for $300. .............provided you only have 2 tickets.

I have never heard of a dryer drawing that significant power without being on.

Must have been a huge safety fire potential. That could be a cheaper way of finding out than coming home one day to a pile of ashes.

Plus you will have another high bill for this month since you caught the problem off of the bill. How many days from the stop of the last bill cycle to your solving the problem?

I have gas.

Appliances, that is. Although none of them were free. They sure are cheaper to run than electric!
